QuitePosted Sep 12, 2017
Pros: Quiet hotel and very handy for the town centre and easy access to Rutland water.
Cons: We liked it just as it is.
Location: Oakham’s a good location for real ale and good local food and, if you must, sightseeing, cycling, walking, fishing, golf, water sports and photography
No gimmicks or trendy bar just an old fashioned quiet hotel with good service and a car park. No evening meals but Oakham has plenty of good pubs and restaurants within a five minute walk.

Not GreatPosted Sep 7, 2017
Pros: Cleanliness was good. No problem with parking
Cons: The place seemed to be run with financial stringency.
Location: Oakham is a lovely little town, and Rutland Water is very near.
My impression was that it is running on a shoestring. there was one staff on reception when we arrived, but all the rest of the time, including departure there was no one there at all. She wisely asked us to pay on arrival. Security was non-existent - anyone could walk in or out as far as we could see. Breakfast was pretty good apart from only bread being sliced toast. The one member of staff always smiled and was pleasant. Our room was very cold on arrival. The following morning the heating came on.

Great location in Oakham with own private carparkPosted Aug 30, 2017
Pros: location and carparking provision.
Cons: the room was looking a little dated
Location: Town centre- used the hotel as a base to go to Rutland Water and Belvoir Castle.
The hotel was fine for a short bank holiday break, with an excellent location.

Very friendly staff and great breakfast. Sadly my room was over the area where staff took late night cigarette breaks so I was kept awake. Just unlucky with my room - it was a late booking and the hotel was busy.

Nice central Oakham hotel, close to Rutland waterPosted Jun 23, 2017
Pros: location, good quality linen and beds and windows that open for fresh air. Simple and speedy check in
Location: Lots to do nearby, several pubs to visit, and the local Rutland Water with all of it's attractions whether you are a cyclist, Sailor or Windsurfer
A lovely location to stay with free parking, it was perfect for a Wedding reception that i attended in Oakham. Clean, tidy and fresh room with a hearty breakfast in the morning. No frills, but a great price! Hotel staff were only too happy to help.

Comfy clean quiet hotel near to town centrePosted Jun 3, 2017
Stayed last year. Enjoyed it so we returned. Convenient for birdwatching on Rutland Water and exploring the area. Great breakfasts, good parking. Only thing lacking is a thermostat on the shower.

A nice stayPosted May 2, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel bedrooms and bathrooms are very clean indeed and the breakfast is second to none in quality and freshness. We could not fault the friendliness of the staff running the hotel. The hotel lacks a decent bar with good selection of wine but it is very close to the centre of Oakham where you will find an assortment of restaurants and pubs or further away in the country side, many smart pubs with excellent menus. The area, Rutland Water, is extremely picturesque with many pretty villages, a dream for hikers and cyclists.
